New York Police have arrested a suspect in connection with the murder of Hasidic landlord Menachem Stark, the New York Daily News reports. Stark was kidnapped Jan. 2 outside his office in Williamsburg, and his burned body was discovered the next day in a dumpster on Long Island. Now, with a suspect in custody, Police Commissioner Bill Bratton says the pace of the investigation “has accelerated significantly.”

The suspect, who police say is the “main player” in Stark’s murder, has not been publicly identified. Two other individuals linked to the crime have been questioned but not charged.

“The District Attorney and I would hope to be in a position in the very near term to be to give you more specifics as to the status of the case but at the moment I’m going to have to leave it that it’s accelerating and it’s moving in a very quick direction,” Bratton concluded.
